president obama has been reluctant to join in that junk without knowing that in fact speaker boehner republican leader in the senate mitch mcconnell would be able to join hands with him as he takes the lead. let me say i think that entitlement spending that republicans house what they ais a is three months they will allow the debt ceiling to be hiked and try to attach some spending cuts or at least say we need to be engaged in negotiations for further increase in debt hike. i think that was a recession for republicans in reality they were losing this argue uchlt. it reengineers to the point that 60 percent of americans think you have to have spending cuts right now. >> you listen to the president's senior advisor today he was talking again about a balanced approach saying whatever deal on the debt ceiling has to have tax loopholes closed. speaker boehner brought the 800 billion in loop whole closures in the beginning of the fiscal cliff negotiation that should be a part of this deal. despite the fact that the president wanted rate increase on the fiscal deal and that's all they want.
. supposed he had turned around, which would have been extraordinary speaker boehner, the republican leader of the house and said we're going to work together on these things we're going to fix my agenda and your agenda and of course boehner's agenda is we have to cut spending and ivan obama's economists tell him that. so, they missed this opportunity. also, i remember catherine gram the publisher of the post used to always say it's very difficult to not like somebody who says they like you. you have talked to republicans and democrats here and they have the feeling. i'm not sure it's correct. but they feel obama doesn't like them. >> bill: he doesn't like them. [ laughter ] that's pretty clear that he doesn't like them because he doesn't feel -- he feels they are the purveyors of white privilege, bob. he is never going to say that but that's the theme that runs through his advisors. the white privileged has to be broken down. >> i think he just doesn't agree with republicans on their agenda. he is hurting his own cause. >> bill: think about what i just said. the republican agenda in his mi
the table and weren't saying this is what we have. now it's up to john boehner and his team to coax out of this conference, who is very skeptical of him because of the deal he did on the tax rates and they look at him askance and what do you want to do, obamacare, the health care law and other things that might include giving the president a debt ceiling increase until the end of his term if he's willing to agree in big changes in entitlement programs. they've got to come up with something. >> megyn: they have to come up with a game plan. we saw with the fiscal cliff negotiations the end of the year they were divided and boehner couldn't sort of corral his house republicans to be on the same page and so now he's trying to do that and to get reelected speaker, he says i'm going to listen to you, i'll be your choice. now, the question, chris, whether you think these house republicans can speak as one and can find, you know, their one mission. you know, who you are and what you stand for. what my parents used to say to me. i say to my kids, who are you and what do you stand for and they're
in the capitol the president, speaker john boehner, majority leader harry reid and a few others. you can imagine what the atmosphere will be like given a lot of words that have flown back and work, particularly between speaker boehner and majority leader reed. for a little more insight on all this, i contacted andy card, president george bush's first white house chief of staff. he was here the day of the inauguration back in 2001 and told me he expects there may be a bit of a similar atmosphere to that of 12 years ago. here's what he told me. >> i suspect it will probably be a lot like the atmosphere that george w. bush experienced in his first term of office. it was a little bit chilly and cold, but at the same time, you can't help but be wrapped up in the excitement of an inauguration. >> andy card also told me he was one of those republicans, although he didn't support president obama, he was very excited for historic reasons about his inauguration back in 2009. i have spoken to a number of republicans over the past few days about the excitement of the inauguration. they all said they will be
think part of the reason speaker boehner and others, we got ourselves into trouble we listened too much to harry reid and the president. we should do what we believe in, what we were elected to do and pass it over to the united states senate. the senate needs to do its job and they haven't. >> greta: it's interesting, secretary geithner sent a letter to speaker boehner about the debt and it's interesting, it says congress should act as early as possible to extend the following authority. the reason i thought it was interesting, no place in the letter does he say the president has the authority to raise it unilaterally. there's no sort of-- maybe there was no reason to include it in, but i thought that it was interesting it was silent. >> and the democrats have this crazy idea we print this multi-trillion dollar coin and that would supposedly make everything go away. the reality is, we have to stop spending money we don't have and you've got to attack entitlement reform and attack discretionary spending. >> greta: clock is ticking down. congressman always nice to see you. >> thanks. >> g
not support raising the debt ceiling without lowering government spenteding. boehner says the consequences of failing to raise the debt ceiling are real but so, too, are allowing the spend be problems to go unresolved. president obama told reporters he is willing to work with republicans to reign in spending but he wants to have those talks separate from raising the debt ceiling. >> while i am willing to p compromise and find common ground over the deficit we cannot afford a debate about whether or not they should pay the bills they have already racked up. congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time social security checks and veteran's benefits will be delayed. >> we are not going to do it without putting in place a spending reform. these cuts promise to transpire but never do are not going to do the job any more. >> senate republican leader mitch mcconnell wanted to say the president needs to get serious about it. you can see the battle lines clearly drawn in washington. >> also pointing out in 2006 president obama then senator voted against raising the ceiling. >> the
. president. it's the leadership, look, you might like john boehner, most americans don't know who he is. all right? marco rubio will be on this program tomorrow. a rising star. but doesn't have nearly the status of president obama or the bully pulpit and the press certainly not going to give rubio a break. everything is going the pet's way. i think that's how he feels. that he has got the momentum and he is going to squash the republicans now once and for all during his term. look i think you are right in identifying the two factors. there is one fundamental difference between those two factors, the media, the press, the intellectuals, academia, hollywood, they are always left. they always were. they always will be. that's the sunrising in the east. you have got to live with it despite that we erected a reagan and bush and then a second bush. but the other factor is not constant that's where i think you have got it wrong. you were arguing earlier in the show there was some kind of structural change in the country liberals have a that is simply a function of the fact that the democrats have j
at john boehner who went with proposals and guessed at what we wanted. i wish we had clinton back, too. >> everybody loves clinton now, too. >> congressman, what did you do in dealing with a president that we will say is obstinate. >> i think the republicans have to draw a hard line in the sand and use whatever means that are possible. i think when he does unstugal things we have to call him on it . representative tockman showed he has the guts to stand up and be count i will, too. i will try to get the president that this document means something. this is the u.s. constitution. i implore him to go back and read arcticle one and two and talking about the powers of the congress and president. he believes that he can run things through fiat. he another thing comings. he will face the guys likeman and i and we'll draw lines and we'll go through another government shut down to help him understand we are serious about getting the crisis under control and paying as you go and paying like every business and american has to do, we'll do it. >> congressman, do you have to worry about the public
the president and joe biden are giving crystal vases but with obama seated with harry reid and speaker boehner, i half expect a food taster present but joking aside, they will be collegial, that is expected. >> senator schumer joked he and his inaugural co-chairman will be sitting between be to keep it simple but he said for the sake of the nation he hopes the two parties find a way to develop a better recentship in the years ahead. >> that tunnel ordeal was a mess, i heard they did not even print purple tickets this time. >> they retired the purple ticket after what happened in 2009. >> battery fire on a japan airlines 787, two weeks ago was not caused by overcharging. the national transportation safety board said there could be problems with wiring. the f.a.a. in the united states and many other countries grounded the boeing 787 dreamliner until they get answers. the plane relies more or electrical system than older aircraft. still ahead, a look back at the president's first term with a look ahead toward what could come next. first we will try to put together what happened at the end of the
boehners and the mitch mcconnells and say in the search for common ground, i hear what you guys are saying? >> look, i think the whole theme of this speech was that throughout our history we've had very, very significant differences and we've been able to work through those differences and of course, you know, you're a student of history, now we've gone through more significant eras of dissent and disagreement than this. his point was we can come together. the point on absolutism though, is we can't come together if we are unyielding and unbending in our points of view. >> why so little talk about jobs and the economy? >> well, i think if you looked at the opening passages of the president's speech he talked about building an economy in which opportunity abounds, in which people can get ahead. that's the fundamental question and obviously jobs is a -- is an essential issue for our country, but also, building an economy which those jobs pay and which people can get ahead, that's fundamental. i mean, we have a state of the union speech this three weeks in which he'll have an opportunity to l
they squeak it through in the house say boehner makes it happen. which i don't think he's going to by the way. then the republican party fractures it becomes weaker. the strategy the president is employing is i am not going to compromise on the debt ceiling. i don't know what he will do on gun control but don't compromise on the debt ceiling. do it by executive order and then say it is your fault. either way he gets the republicans. if they pass they get weakened if they oppose they demonize. >> it is a smart political strategy. >> it could be but it worked so far but not 100 percent. remember republicans got control of the house of representatives during his term after his first two years when he was very aggressive about his initiatives and they kind of stopped him in his tracks. he can't do very much over there. if you resist him i am not sure that's true on guns, bill. gun control has been a dangerous issue for democrats. may be a womell bring if hemay unpopular if something isn't done. i don't think he's going to propose very much on gun control. on immigration they have a sense that the
the problems at hand. for now an aid to house speaker john boehner says, quote: house committees of jurisdiction will review these recommendations and if the senate passes a bill we will also take a look at that ed henry live at the white house tonight from the north lawn. good evening to you. >> good evening. >> what are the chances any of this passes? >> it's going to be a long shot for the president. he knows that it's going to be a big fight as you said. that's why he took some actions on his own. those 23 executive actions. for this to have real teelt. he has got to get congress to pass legislation. that's why among others to help lobby for this he brought in kids around the country who wrote him letters after the newtown massacre and basically urged him to have gun control. he mentioned one of those letters and one of those kids who was there today, take a listen. >> the letter that julia wrote me. she said i know that laws have to be passed by congress, but i beg you to try very hard. [ laughter ] julia, i will try very hard. >> but there are gun shows going on this week.
and they could prevail. speaker boehner brought forth blocking increase for everyone but millionaires, they balked. what passed later is something conservatives like less. they opposed that, too and they lost. some republicans are saying they have more leverage now to force spending cuts. maybe they do. but they will need to be smart about how they use it. with the senate, the white house and most of the press againstbe them, they should not expect a fair fight. >> bret: paul ryan said they need to be careful and remember what you are saying here. you had other members like congresswoman kathy mcmorris rogers in leadership saying you do need to shut down the government and make a stand. >> if the lessons of the 1990s when the republicans took control of the house tell you anything you shouldn't talk about how you are okay with shutting down the government. i said this before. people tell pollsters they want the government cut down, but they don't want the government shut down. republicans lost ground when they have done that and end up not coming out with much. my sense is they have t
they will pass three-month temporary increase to give them time to finalize a budget. speaker boehner said before there is long-term debt limit increase a budget should be passed that cut spending. the house g.o.p. whip hinted at the strategy. >> our hope is to pass something early so the senate can take action as well. i wouldn't be jeopardizingor economy there. it shows it's a rational, put us on a better path. and i would hi the american public could support it and the senate as well. >> fox news poll reveals 83% think government spending is out of control. up five points from two years ago. 69% of those surveyed say the debt limit should only be raised after major cuts. aides to the number two senate republicans does not support giving president obama a blank check but told "houston chronicle" editorial board, "we will raise the debt ceiling. we are not going to default on our debt." he went on to say "i tell you unequivocally we are not going to default." cornyn notes there will be tax revenue coming in and said it may be necessary to partially shut down the government to secure the long-ter
inner billie bush. we wanted to see him stammering and blubbering like john boehner leaving production of les miserables. he denied bribing teammates and bribing people and denied doing steroids since 2006. coincidently the last year that the statute of limitations apply. he was lying all over the place. i don't think he helped himself at all last night. i came away liking him less than i did before the interview. >> bill: gutfeld, he has got legal problems all over the place. we talked about this with our is it legal duo earlier in the week. this makes it worse. because he basically is saying, you know, i sued the times of london, for example, he won a judgment. half a million dollars. but i was lying. the story they had was right. and i did it and now people suing him. i think there is a hair person or a masseuse or somebody who said look, he did it, and he went after her, and all of this business. now he loses all of those cases. and if he didn't say anything, at least he would have a chance. >> well, you know what? he only has one option left. and that is to enter politics. clearly
and common ground. >> you do, you do. let me explain this to you, chris. remember simpson bowles? boehner when he went to work with the president, took not only nancy pelosi's plan, taxing people 1 million above and took the president's debt commission plan to him and listen republicans have made guess turs to work with this president, but it's been obama's way or no way at all and who suffers? the american people i'm not going to stand here and let you say that the. >> with all due respect. >> let me finish, please, and i'm not going to stand here and let you say that the republicans have not reached across to work with-- >> with all due respect. that's laughable. >> oh, is that not true. >> republicans talking about. >> is that not true, chris. >> wait a second. >> kelly: ladies and gentlemen. >> let me finish. in terms of a budget deal-- >> a timeout, please. >> the republicans have not been willing to do anything about that. >> kelly: chris. >> jez. >> kelly: angela mcglowan, thank you, both, i keep thinking every time that we get into these debates i should say zip, boom pow, and kee

leaders, at least today, are saying warm things and speaker boehner at traditional lunch gave a toast which is what they will do on a day like this, saying we are ready to work with you, congratulations. tomorrow and the day after, republicans will be ready to start pushing back on the issues. the battle is joined in pomp and circumstance today. the president made clear in that address in the days ahead he will try to take it to the republicans. the question will be, how they will push back. >>neil: we will take that up with the majority head of the house of representatives shortly and ahead of that larry sabato. larry, you are an expert on all things presidential history and were with me four years ago when it was a lot cold it and there were almost two million, and we are told 500,000 or 700,000 this go round. what do you make just of this crowd versus last crowd, historic last time, business as usual this time? >> inaugurals for a second temperature are flat. that's because we already know the president. we know the president's staff. we know the president's cabinet. we certainly k
that on capitol hill, and when speaker boehner gave a toast a few moments ago at the traditional luncheon between the president and the congressional leaders he spoke about coming together. take a listen. >> in the spirit of harmony i'm proud to present the flags that flew over this battalion of democracy today, to president obama and vice president joe biden. to you gentleman, i say, congratulations and godspeed. >>reporter: the real test whether they can come together is not today with the porch and circumstance but more likely next month with the president going back to capitol hill to deliver the state of the union address. he will have more details on immigration reform, the deficit reduction plan with sharp differences between the parties. they are talking about coming together today but there will be a lot of major policy battles in the days ahead. people have been waiting on pennsylvania av parade to come by and they cannot wait to see the president. the pomp and circumstance will carry the day for now; the policy for another day. >>shepard: i work in new york and you in washington and on
. >> greta: are you going to speak to speaker boehner? >> of course. have you said anything to him at all so far? >> yes, we have and i think, i think they're going to wait to see what obama does, and i've talked with other of my colleagues, what's going on and there's a general consensus that if he steps over that line, that something has to be done. you cannot-- it's not like he's abraham lincoln, we're not at civil war. >> greta: the line i understand for executive orders on gun control, is that the line? >> no, the line is when you cross from administrative executive orders which deal with his office. >> greta: okay. >> and pass legislation during executive order. >> greta: suppose he says he's going to ban assault weapons with executive order. >> you can't do that, that's against the constitution, the constitution is very clear. >> greta: what would be your first step if he did that. >> i think we outlined multiple avenues. it's defending the constitution in any ways we can legally and that process has many different avenues. we're willing to take those to defend the constitution. i thi
it house speaker john boehner told house members, quote: before there is any long-term debt alowe time for a budget to get done. >> he our hope is to pass something very early so the senate can take action as well. i wouldn't put any jeopardizing of the economy there. shows that it is a very rational, put us on a better path and i would think all the american public could support it in the senate as well. >> the house is also suggesting a policy of no budget, no pay. if lawmakers fail to do their job, the american people shouldn't pay them. bill? >> bill: what do democrats say about all of this, mike? >> they seemed to welcome the idea, the republicans sound willing to extend the debt ceiling. a spokesman for majority leader harry reid says if the house can pass a clean debt ceiling increase to avoid default and allow the white house to to meet its existing obligations we will be happy to consider it. they don't want the drama. >> debt ceiling in a manner that causes no concern to the economy and to global markets, that does not in any way suggest that washington is about to, you know,
rid of them. we'll find out why next. >> rick: john boehner now saying that republicans will not agree to increasing the nation's debt limit unless democrats first pass a budget cutting spending. and they're taking to twitter to try to rally support. will their plan work? we'll talk about it ♪ [ acoustic guitar: upbeat ] [ dog ] we found it together. on a walk, walk, walk. love to walk. yeah, we found that wonderful thing. and you smiled. and threw it. and i decided i would never, ever leave it anywhere. because that wonderful, bouncy, roll-arod thing... had made you play. and that... had made you smile.

in that meeting house speaker john boehner announced that house budget chairman paul ryan, the former vice presidential candidate is working on a plan to balance the budget in less than 10 years. that gives some reassurance to conservatives who are anxious about voting to authorize more debt, shep. >> shepard: democrats, mike, said they wanted a longer extension. what's the word from them on this proposal? >> well, the senate majority leader harry reid didn't fully embrace the house plan. he also didn't say no either. but over at the white house, well, they are saying the president would sign it. >> the bill still has to overcome some concerns expressed by members of the house and the senate before it can pass both chambers and reach the president's desk. if it does, and it reaches the president's desk, he would not stand in the way of the bill becoming law. >> if the president is not going to block it that would seem to add pressure on senator reid to take it up and act on it and that may force a budget to get done before long. shep? >> shepard: see what happens. mike emanuel on capitol h
. >> if john boehner and mitch mcconnell think that they can come up with a plan that somehow meets their criteria that they've set for why they will -- when they will raise the debt ceiling, they are free to go ahead and try. jon: chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live on capitol hill now. how are some of the top republicans responding to president obama on this debt ceiling issue? >> reporter: well, jon, republicans are clearly uncomfortable with prominent democrats already talking about a tax increase when you consider the fiscal cliff deal raised taxes and every worker with a payroll tax hiring expiring and raised taxes on upper income americans even further, check your pay stub. a leading republican says responding to the president what's critical is getting spending under control. >> it's a compelling message saying we ned to pay the bills we've racked up. of it messes the whole point again. think of it in terms of a credit card. in you have a son or daughter who exceeds the limit, the first thing you do is rip up the card, the second thing you do is you say yo
, one on the house, john boehner said we'll raise the debt sealing a dollar for every dollar you cut spending. republicans out of pennsylvania, pat toomey you prioritize the bills you pay for long period of time. weeks and months. make sure the military is taken care of. >> sure. bill: would you back house idea or senate idea or neither? >> i think both are part of the negotiation strategy. i think john boehner's plan to bring down spending dollar for dollar makes a lot of sense and i think pat toomey's does. you don't want to cut very things most critical to the u.s. there is lot of garbage spending in government, believe me, bill, when i say that. why would you make the critical spending the first things you're going to cut except just to hold the country hostage. that is what the democrats are threatening. it doesn't make sense. bill: do you think republicans can win on either option? >> if they do it carefully, slowly and comfortably, yes i do think they can win. i think we can get major reform using the debt ceiling, slowly but surely. don't make it a battle all at once. raise t

boehner, they have a plan when it comes to the debt ceiling. they will pass a debt ceiling, the gop will pass a debt ceiling extension for the next several months, in exchange for something to happen in the senate. what they want to have happen in the senate is the senate to pass a budget. as you might know as well, the senate has not passed a budget in several years time. so that is what that, this is negotiating point. the house says they will go ahead and do this. they will extend our debt limit, our credit limit, if you will in exchange for seeing a budget passed in the senate. now it is worth noting as you might know, charles krauthamer comes out with an editorial every week in the "washington post" and he actually wrote about this idea today in his editorial saying almost exactly the same thing. i'm going to read this part to you. the more prudent course, he is talking about the debt ceiling debate, would be to find an offer that can not be refused of the short-term tradeoff utterly unasailable and straightforward. for example, charles krauthamer writes, say, extend the debt c
there in the house. but speaker boehner has resolved not to let them dictate policy. >> not everyone is as optimistic as shiewp schumer is. tomorrow, they will be here, 1600 people up here, representing all three branches of government. most people expect comity and respect will be the order of the day. but evan bayh believes by tuesday morning, they will be back to the same old fights. >> the politics is just very divisive, with the extremes in both parties punishing any sort of compromise. it used to be back in my father's time and my early days, compromise was an act of statesmanship, for too many, it's an act of betrayal. >> tomorrow, when the president gives his address, it will be all about finding common ground. former white house chief of staff in the bush administration, talked to me about that yesterday. he remembers well, the tensions surrounding george bush's first ineggeration and he hopes that president obama uses the word "i" a whole lot less and the word "we" a lot more. >> when the united states was formed, our founders took great pains to distinguish our government from the european
this place, you look great. >> the president shaking hands with house speaker john boehner, there you see, and the majority leader cantor and nancy pelosi as well as the senate majority harry reid welcoming him to the capitol. there you see the west front of the u.s. capitol and the familiar part of the inaugural ceremony where the president will be sworn n. there you see former president clinton and the current secretary of state hillary clinton. >> we are only expecting two former presidents to be here today, bill clinton and jimmy carter. president carter already came out but george h.w. bush still recovering from a recent illness and george w. bush and laura bush sending their regrets and wishing the first family all the best on this special day, and their family. >> all of the dignitaries come down, they are seated, then the families will be announced and seated. the biden family announced and seated, just after 11:00 in ten minutes. then the obama family will be announced and seated. and then you'll have the ceremonial announcement of the first laid doe and dr. biden as well. megyn:
the president, speaker boehner and majority harry reid will be sitting down at the same table and wonder what that environment is like. i asked former bush white house chief of staff andy card about that remembering back to 2001 after that controversial election, and what the environment was there, here is what he told me. >> i suspect it will probably be a lot like the atmosphere that george w. bush experienced in his first term of office, it was a little bit chilly and cold, but at the same time, you can't help, but be wrapped up in the excitement of an inauguration. >> reporter: of course, that's what this really is about. celebrating american democracy on monday, tomorrow, the big question, what will the environment be like on tuesday morning, alisyn. >> alisyn: well, that's absolutely right. there is a lot of environment, john. thanks for showcasing that for us and we can always hope for bipartisanship. thanks so much, john roberts. >> reporter: good to see you. >> alisyn: you too, over to steve. >> steve: thank you very much, ali. the campaign team that got president obama elected twi
as anybody else, he says when boehner and i had that game of golf back in the summer of 2011 we had a good time. but it didn't lead to a deal getting done and he thinks that it's the republicans are just too dug in on their own political positions for any of that glad-handing to make a difference. >> he thinks the republicans, who is the president of the united states of america is the one dug in on spending cuts. look at cbo saying listen, cut 1%, 1%, get the 4.6 trillion dollars in debt relief over the next ten years, but is obama willing to do anything about it? he's not even going to have his budget on time and harry reid hasn't passed a budget in almost four years, but yet, blames the republicans who keep on passing budgets and sending them to harry reid and nothing gets done. >> megyn: but could any of this get solved? could any of this get solved by glad-handing, socializing, having people over for drinks? how did your dad do it. >> i tell you, he had to go to tip o'neill to get tip o'neill, the speaker of the house, who didn't like ronald reagan's politics and disagreed with everyt
idea would you support? are you on john boehner's side who says we'll give you a dollar in debt if you give us a dollar in spending cuts, or pat toomey the republican senator from pennsylvania says you can make priority payments to make sure the military is covered and items like that, and then make less priority payments further off in the future. would you go for one or option number two? >> i've cosponsored pat toomey's legislation, it is a temporary measure because we have to get the spending under control. that is the big problem here in this country right now, bill. we are burying our children and grandchildren under a mountain of debt. and the credit agencies say they are going to lower our ratings but not because of the debt ceiling, but because they want a credible deficit reduction plan, and the president doesn't seem to be interested in actually coming up with a credible way to deal with the amount of spending we are doing in this country. bill: if that is the says, doyoo many me, do you think it can get through the senate. >> i imagine harry reid under the direction of the
